This article is relevant to our topic because it's about AIDS & HIV awareness in schools. Although it is from The Times Of India it can be applied in Australia. This article shows how the district health department began a awareness campaign and what they involved. I found this very helpful and interesting.

i think this article is a very relevant to our topic. The New Zealand Government has a plan to give out free long-term contraception to women receiving welfare payments to help encourage safe sex to prevent them of getting pregnant and then struggling to look after the baby. It's a reliable site as it is a bbc uk news site.
Although the article is about anti-poverty groups are criticising is, i still believe it's a good idea.

Kelsea Latham's comment, May 20, 2012 10:45 PM
This article is relevant and not very positive. It is saying that less young men and women (more men) are a lot less informed about contraceptive methods, meaning they wouldn't use then at all or effectively.
The site is reliable as it is a New Health website.

Vaginal rings 'riskier than pill'

Vaginal rings 'riskier than pill' | Year 9 PDHPE: Kelsea :) | Scoop.it
Using skin patches or vaginal rings as contraception comes with a higher risk of developing serious blood clots than the pill, according to a study.

Kelsea Latham's comment, May 20, 2012 10:32 PM
i believe that this article is relevant and reliable, it's reliable because it is on a bbc health website. It covers both the risks of the pill and says that the vaginal ring or skin patches has a higher risk of developing blood clots, which raises concerns on certain types of contraception and limits some women with their choices and may create panic on those who werent informed.

According to this article, which is once again relevant to our topic of Alcohol and Binge Drinking in teens, binge drinking can harm the brains of teenage girls, affecting them more than it does teenage boys. This is a reliable source and i think it is very important that young girls know the damage that can be caused by binge drinking.

this relates to our topic because a large percentage of our influences are our parents and if they do not stop us or give us the right information and skills we can fall to peer pressure and ultimately binge drinking.

this can be connected to our topic because everyone our age watches movies. For a report to be on movies influencing binge drinking is alarming because there is a lot of movies that have frequent use of alcohol in them.

i think this relates to our topic this term because one it is australian and two it is showing you how to say no. The guy thought through what his night could be like if he drank and stuck to his guns that he wasn't going to have a drink. This government funded ad uses a bit of comedy for it to attractive teens too.
